Happy 4th Wedding Anniversary Leonora

Heart in Sky (Red Arrows) Southport, September 2012

Today, is my fourth wedding anniversary to Leonora (who also writes on this blog). She’s stood by me through good times and bad and I love her with all my heart. My reporting of what’s happening at Wirral Council would probably be very different over the last few years without her help.

The photo used is from the Red Arrows display at the weekend at the Southport Air Show (which despite the Red Arrows display team having to use one reserve aircraft that couldn’t use smoke) was very impressive and enjoyable. Certainly Wirral are trying to do a similarly large event with the Ricoh Women’s British Open at the Royal Liverpool in Hoylake.

So here’s to four years of marriage and hopefully many more to come.
